Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 167 of school on this Tuesday, May 26, 2015. The forecast calls for cloudy skies, with high of about 75 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from ___________ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
National Blueberry Cheesecake Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1864, anxious to create new free territories during the Civil War, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln signs an act establishing the Montana Territory. However, as Montana was on the unstable frontier, it did little to add to the integrity of the Union, and Sidney Edgerton, the territory’s first governor, fled after suffering through several months of Indian raids.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Dolphins may be smarter than chimpanzees.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Do It, Don't Say It. 

You know that old common wisdom, actions speak louder than words? Well, it's true. While you can apologize for not doing something until you're blue in the face, you'll gain so much more appreciation by another in your life by simply doing it in the first place. Yes, it means you have to work harder to keep on top of things to begin with, but the reward is that people will know you care because you just did it without being asked or reminded to do so.

According to Cynthia Ozick, American writer, "We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude."

MAP Testing
MAP testing today: Mrs. Laquindanum, Mrs. McWilliams and Ms. S. Isherwood.

Our final day for Box Tops is Friday, May 29th. If you need forms, they are in the office.

Safety First!
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • Remember to play safe on the playground and when the bell rings to line up, walk to your line safely. We do not want anyone running as you could get hurt.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, remember to sit at the lunch tables. All students are to remain sitting at the lunch tables until the duty teacher says that you may get up.
  • At the end of the day, your teacher will walk you to your designated exit for parent pick-up. If your ride is not there, you need to wait, stay at the front of the school and wait patiently and quietly for your ride.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!"
